New featured illustrator tells all (about the SCBWI Int'l conference in NYC, anyway)

You may remember John Deininger as the 2nd Runner-up in the Juried Art Portfolio Contest at our 2009 annual writers and illustrators conference. He also received recognition there for an Outstanding Work in Progress for his picture-book manuscript, Beep. Now, we're happy to announce that he's the latest featured illustrator on our very own web page!

John has also compiled a wonderfully detailed post about the SCBWI International Winter Conference in New York City last weekend--from an illustrator's perspective! The main points:
  1. Be yourself, be unique.
  2. Put your heart into it, be emotional, be passionate.
  3. Keep going and going.

He has TONS more detailed and specific notes, though, including his conference doodles! Click here to read more.

Thanks for sharing, John. We hope you keep going and going!
